One man is dead in Linton and now police try to determine why.
Officers were called Friday night on a report of a suicidal man at 420 SW J Street in Linton.
Police say that 48-year-old James Jarman was on the back porch of the house with a handgun and would not give it up.
Officers tried to negotiate with Jarman, at some point shots were fired by both sides and Jarman was killed.
It‘s not clear if Jarman died by his own hand or was killed by officers.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
